I Dream of Shoes

Theres something about the beginning of summers…you want to completely change your wardrobe and shop ALL the time! Ofcourse you can’t leave shoes far behind.
Now I dont have a bank balance that can afford these shoes…or even one for that matter! But a girl can dream.
So here is a selection of shoes that im currently day dreaming about and obsessing over. It almost seems like a mirage in the sheer heat of the season though.

Fashmob – Lecoanet Hemant

It was a close gathering of fine people from the fashion fraternity and the employees of Lecoanet Hemant for the showcasing of their Summer 2012 Collection. People were mingling, sipping on wine, eating some cheese when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, quite like a ‘fLashmob’ but not quite either…women…wearing the new collection, walked into the foyer area. Women with real bodies and real faces and real personalities. Right from Lecoanet Hemant’s employees to designers, entrepreneurs and more, women from all walks of life showcased the collection in what was a brilliant and id say bold concept. I could see Hemant written all over this idea. And that is why I have so much respect for the guy.

Beer Much? – Striker Pub & Brewery

When its a Sunday and you work five days a week, you tend to make the absolute most of it – by forced habit. So naturally I turn to my best friend – BEER. And what better place to have it than Striker, in Gurgaon, where i’d like to think that its freshly brewed just for me on Sundays…
This time they were out of Jazzy Light so we had Weiss Blues…yummy in my tummy!

Uma Gawd Performs at Cheri

Uma Gawd is a very well known London based Drag-Artist who was in town to perform as part of her ‘Dragged Around The World’ Tour and it was an entertaining delight to watch her move, sing, dance and capture everyones attention at Cheri, the restaurant at One Qutab.

We were lucky enough to have been blessed with pleasant weather but Uma took the heat to another level. As a finale Uma sang and performed to ‘Shiela ki jawani’ as well.
Here are some pics from the lovely evening:

A Working Saturday Brunch – Cointreau Inspired

What happens when you have your best people around you and your best alcohol around too?!….well don’t ask me because I dont really remember much. But one thing I do remember is it was all a big blast!

It was a working saturday, but then this is exactly what some saturdays are meant to be – work deprived and alcohol imbibed.
Joined by close friends, family, tummy-happy food and gorgeous cocktails. Of course it was all Cointreau based since the people at Remy-Cointreau were crazy enough to give me a bottle and tell me to go nuts with it. It was everywhere, in the food, sangria, cocktails and even on our clothes and table covers by the end of it! And im proud to report that the bottle was devoured of its last drop that day.
